Its optimal size-to-weight ratio, flat gate-to-rope interface and resistance to freezing up in alpine conditions all ensure its continued popularity. The biner that started the wiregate revolution, features a large rope-bearing surface and a nose angle that has been opened slightly to improve clipping, it is the same size as the original HotWire with less weight.

    I have had this for about a year and it's very useful. I use it mostly for prusik slings. Great buy

    Only 1oz heavier than the Neutrino with the handling and clipping benefits of a full size karab. I have these on the rope end of all of my quickdraws. I find the flat surface of the wire gate to be super easy to clip even with wet or icy ropes.
